So...we started TTC on our honeymoon in Jamaica in August of 2007. That month I found out I was not ovulating so my doctor put me on Clomid. I took the clomid for 6 months without success. I gave up TTC and stopped my meds. In month 8 of TTC I got my wonderful bfp!! Unfortunately I miscarried the baby on May 2, 2008, at about 8 weeks gestation. It was heartbreaking and our little angel baby is still very much missed. I wish everyone here tons and tons of baby dust. Mop Head Buddies for Life!!!!!!!!!!
*************UPDATE..........BFP ON JULY 3RD, 2009!!!!!****************
May 2, 2008: We lost our little one at 8 weeks. We miss our angel baby.
June 3, 2008: Yay...finally AF is here. Once I get a positive on an OPK I'm back in the game!
June 25, 2008: Nope...no positive OPK...Did some blood work and got the results today that I didn't ovulate and my hormones are all of balance.
I'm out for March.
July 5, 2008: AF is in town again...right on time.
July 7, 2008: Starting clomid again. Hopefully this will do the trick this month!
July 20, 2008:+++++++++++++++ OPK!!!!!!!!!!!!!
August 3, 2008: Booooooooo AF
August 5, 2008: Start 2nd month of clomid.
September 2, 2008: Took hpt and it was negative....Booooooo!!!!!!!!
September 3, 2008: Grrrrrrrrrr for AF!
October 2, 2008: Yep, you guessed it, the unwanted monthly visitor payed me a visit. **sigh**
October 14, 2008: 1st appointment with the RE. He is doubling my clomid and may add metformin depending on some blood tests results. Once I get a + opk next cycle, IUI here we come!
October 31, 2008: Follow up appointment with RE. Bad news...I was diagnosed with PCOS and I am starting metformin=( One more thing to add to the list...
November 4, 2008: CD35 and FINALLY af showed up. Now it's time to get the plan in action ;)
November 10, 2008: Sonohystogram. They are checking on my uterine fibroid.
November 12, 2008: Results of sonohystogram are inconlcusive. Now I have to have an MRI and my IUI might be on hold pending the results of the MRI. The bad news just never ends
November 21, 2008: ++++++ OPK!!!!!!
November 22, 2008: First IUI procedure!!!!!!
December 5, 2008: AF in town.
December 10, 2008: Appt. with RE. Ultrasound showed no cysts, yay!
December 16, 2008: Pelvic ultrasound to check on the fibroid.
December 18, 2008: Follow up appt with RE. He is recommending that I have surgery to remove the fibroid before we TTC. Have to make an appointment to go see my regular ob/gyn.
December 22, 2008: Appt with ob/gyn. He agrees with RE and thinks I need to have the fibroid operated on again. He referred me to a surgeon who will be able to remove the fibriod robotically.
January 7, 2009: Appointment with surgeon. Scheduled surgery for February 17th. He said there is a very small chance I could lose my uterus, but he doesn't think it's likely.
February 17, 2009: Surgery. Please keep me in your prayers.
March 11, 2009: Post-Op: Okay, so again, not great news. They can't rule out that the fibroid wasn't cancerous so the surgeon wants to remove my uterus with in the year. He is giving me a couple of months to get prego and then after I deliver I will have to have a hysterectomy. He said if we don't get knocked up in the next couple of months I will have to have the hysterectomy and I will have to do adoption or surrogacy. **sigh**
March 20, 2009: Appointment with RE. We are going full steam ahead with IUI and injectibles.
